My name is Dorian Oldham. I’m the State General Agent for Overland Park (Kansas City) and Wichita, KS, and I’ve been with American Income Life for 12 years. I started in September of 1999. At the time, I was working in South Florida in the water treatment industry. I had a job but I knew it was not really a career, because I was always looking around.
One day I received a call from my brother who was working for a company called American Income Life. He said: “This is the most amazing opportunity. You’ve got to come and see this and be part of what we’re doing.” Unfortunately, for me, I waited a year because I was skeptical and wanted to see how he would do. He did fantastic, and then I took a second look at the company and went – okay. This is something that I’ve got to do. One thing I always knew was that I had a ceiling where I was; there was only so far that I could go.
Here at American Income Life opportunity is unlimited. You can write your own ticket. As long as you work hard and you do what we tell you to do, you can absolutely go as far as you want because there is no ceiling. I came to work for my brother in Louisville, Kentucky and worked there for about a year. Then I went to Toledo, Ohio – and worked there for another year, then to upstate New York where I really blossomed and moved my way up …. Agent, Supervising Agent, General Agent, Master General Agent, Regional General Agent, and then, finally, State General Agent.
One of the best things about American Income Life is what we do. There is an air of nobility to it. What I mean by that is – not only are you able to make your own dreams come true; but you also are able to enrich the lives of the Agents and Managers who work within your organization. Most importantly – we’re able to remind the people we work with what is most important to them, and that’s the protection of their family. We do that better than anybody else.
So, when I go to sleep at night and lay my head down, I know in some way I made a difference in people’s lives, and that feels great. To me, that is what American Income Life is all about. There’s never been a better time to start with our organization than today.
